How we practice sustainability

The issue of sustainability has been firmly anchored at the core of the Deka Group in our business strategy since 2015. From human resources management and human rights to compliance and information security, we place great importance on having sustainable standards in place throughout our corporate management. In addition, there is the area of products: Sustainability is a fundamental issue here, too. We have clear principles that provide the framework for our funds and financing.

To continuously improve our own banking operations, we have introduced an environmental management system certified to DIN EN ISO 14001 for the entire Deka Group. Even more: for the first time for the year 2020, the unavoidable emissions from business operations were fully offset by the purchase of reduction certificates. This is also reflected in the ratings awarded by sustainability rating agencies: Deka is rated above average – and is constantly improving.

In 2020, the Corona pandemic has affected us in almost all areas of life: in the circle of family and friends, as entrepreneurs and employees, as borrowers and investors. It has impressively shown us as to how vulnerable our mobile society and our globalised economy are for such crises. But it has also shown us as to how we can overcome such situations together with the right attitude and the openness to explore new paths. This should encourage us to tackle the sustainability-related challenges lying ahead of us.

This is how we practice social responsibility:
